EFFECT OF PROPULSION DEVICES ON THE PROPULSIVE PERFORMANCE OF SUPERTANKERS. PART 2. COMPARISON AMONG DUCTED, TRIPLE AND CONTRAROTATING SCREW PROPELLERS

The main results obtained from the model tests were: 1. The stern shape having "u" type of frameline has superior propulsive performance to "v" type in spite of disadvantage on resistance. In comparing six propulsion systems, minimum power was achieved for the triple screw ship with inward-turning wing propellers.
